I am in the process of being nearly-finished with a picture, of a future Spikey, Vincent, and Roland, and I need a little help...

You see, Photoshop and I are MORTAL ENEMIES. But I am very good friends with pen and paper. So... Is there anyone other there that could clean and re-size my art?

Seriously, my dad should be scanning it right now at work... Is there anyone that could help?

Anyone? Or the Author could take it scrappy if he likes?

I could, but I'm really busy right now with assignments. If you don't mind waiting for a while I can clean it in Photoshop for you no problem.

PS: If you're a bit dubious about letting some random person muck around with your work (and I would be), here's a link to stuff I've done before.

Hi and welcome!

Sorry, I slept too long today, normally I'm much faster with my replies :)

Oh, this is *so* cute. I'll clean and resize it and put it up in a short while, when I'm awake enough.

Thanks!!

All right, I uploaded it, it's here :)

The scan wasn't complete, so I took out the partial text in the corner and some pixels on the right side. Otherwise I levelled it (so the background is white and the darkest lines are black), cleaned up a few smudges outside the characters, and saved it as grayscale.

Because the text was only partial in the scan, I'm not sure now what the title of the picture is, I named it "Future" for now. Also the picture currently doesn't have any signature on it, because I wasn't sure which part of the text I should use (if any). But let me know if you want anything changed or fixed or added, and I'll do it if I can!

Thanks again, especially Spiky is too cute for words there :)

No, no... Anooo, I'm so nervous! Wow, the author!

No, everything's fine. My dad kinda scanned it funny, so I don't mind that you cut out the text. All it had was my signature, the title and that it was only for distribution here, but I doubt anyone wants to steal it, lol.

It was meant to be a picture of the future! See, Spiky has little wings? Vincent's a scholar and Roland's a knight! I had a lot of fun with Roland's costume too, with all the belts and the parted cape. I also think Vincent looks really cute in glasses!

I hope that you like it! It's the first fanart I've ever given to anyone! I'm so nervous! :3

He does. Now I wonder if he'll need them in the future... he reads a lot, after all :) It's such a happy future pictured there. Too bad that reality likely won't be as happy ...

Don't be so nervous (I would be too. I'm still nervous about every single comic of mine that goes online!), I absolutely love it. It's really great to see my characters in somebody else's style. And cute always wins, anyway ;)

BTW, let me know if you want a link to your homepage, deviant account, blog, or something, from that fanart page -- I'll gladly add one :)

I'm so happy that you like it!

I really hope that their future will be happy... The comic can be so depressing at times! And I really like it when Vincent and Roland are together, they both seem in better spirits that way. I hope Roland is okay out on the war-front.

Umm, I don't have a deviant art or anything, I guess the closest thing I have to a webpage would be my livejournal, http://themodestotter.livejournal.com/

As you can see, I'm really more of a writer... Maybe I should do fanfiction for you instead? Lol.

Hehe. You'd be the first :) Fanfiction would feel very strange, but I'm not opposed to the idea.

I'll go and add the link. I'll go and friend you on LJ too, even though I never write there ;)

Wow! Thanks!

A webcomic artist friended me! My life is now complete! Hooray!

And about that fanfiction... You're tempting me now! It'd be hard because I don't know your intentions with the comic right now, and my slash instincts might get the better of me. Because, you have to admit... They've had the most attention as a couple. :P

I REALLY like Tonio too. You might see some fanart of him in the future.

I love this happy picture of the three characters. Things like small wings and the crest on the chest of Roland's suit are good additions. And I really like how you have taken the characters and actually added something of your own into them, instead of just copying the existing ones.

And by the way, welcome to the board ;)

Well, I *personally* am not opposed to yaoi fanfics either, but I don't know about the majority of readers ... and I'm not sure if I could officially link to them ;P

And yeah, Vincent/Roland or Tonio/Vincent would make cute couples, but, sadly, they are not canon. At least not now ;P

Wow, thanks!

Yeah, I had a lot of fun! I'm a little dissapointed with the sloppy line-work, and the HANDS, blah, but I like costuming other peoples characters.

My favorite part would have to be Spiky's tiny wings. So thanks for pointing that out! :D

Hahaha! Well, to be entirely honest? I feel like you've nudged more towards Vincent/Roland than any other couple, no matter how many times you've referenced Helena or Jonquil. And I think other people may feel the same.

It surely isn't unintentional, but it still has no real basis. At least Vincent is definitely not interested in Roland in *that* way. Roland's attraction to Vincent is more complicated, but no, it's not really *that* way either ;P

But now, go and explore the rest of the forums! You have voted in all the polls yet, right? Especially the "soap opera" one ;)
